Motorists should be more careful in making sharp turns especially if the road is wet and slippery. A lot of accidents attributed to the road and weather condition could have been prevented if only the driver was careful enough and was aware of the slippery road.
As in a recent accident, a man was seriously injured and his grandson was hospitalized after he lost control of his vehicle at a sharp curve on Wooden Valley Cross Road.
The California Highway patrol said that 73-year-old Luigi Bellimi was driving a 1999 Chevy Suburban with his 13-year-old grandson, identified as Andrew Bellimi, when the accident occurred.
According to reports, the older Bellimi was driving the Suburban towing a trailer with a golf cart at about 30-35mph when he lost control of it at a sharp curve. The vehicle then crossed the road to the shoulder lane where it hit a tree.
Bellimi and his grandson had to be extricated from the vehicle. The driver was airlifted to Queen of the Valley Medical Center while Andrew was taken to the same hospital through a ground ambulance.
Authorities are investigating other factors that could have caused the crash.
Hopefully, Andrew and Luigi will have a quick recovery from the injuries they’ve sustained.
